How it works

How eye tracking works in XR

In an XR headset, eye tracking components typically include cameras and light sources placed in a ring-like structure between the user and the display. The core machine-learning algorithms interpret the camera feed to generate a real-time stream of data points such as pupil size, gaze vector, and eye openness. This information can be used, for example, to determine how well a person can follow a stimulus, how they react to a scene, and their intent.
